    Abstract

    THE new edition of this well-known book of reference maintains the familiar arrangement of past years, which gives rather more than a third of the book to the British Empire and the United States, and the remainder to the other States of the world with their Colonies and Dependencies, arranged in alphabetical order. The account of each State ends with a long list of useful books and there is a voluminous index to every place name. The volume has undergone the usual thorough revision and contains a marvellous array of recent statistical matter relating to area, population, finance and trade, besides ample accounts of constitutions and Governments. Unsettled as the state of the world is at present, there have been no transferences of territory of importance except the Saar, no emergence of new States and no disappearance of old ones during the year. Manchuria still appears under its old name as a territory of China, although a coloured map shows Manchukuo according to Japanese sources. A second coloured map shows the Saharan area ceded to Italy by the Anglo -Egyptian Sudan in the Libyan boundary settlement.
